    It just depends on what the brand is.
    I have several that I've picked up that have "water snake" labels. There is also a water weasel. They are exactly the same.

    If you have a food vacuum sealer, you can make one.

    Cut a piece of bag roll about 5" long. Cut it in half width wise if it's an 11" roll, so you end up with a flap. Seal up two sides completely, and seal all but one corner of the final side. Fill the bag with water so that the width at the widest point is 3/4" or so. Prop it upright in the freezer until frozen solid.

    Once frozen, use the vacuum function of the bag sealer to extract the air and seal the last corner. Verify the seal, then allow the ice to melt. The bag should be only 1/2" thick or so overall.

    Once it's thawed, you should be able to roll it up and secure with rubber bands or tape. There will be room for a thermometer probe.

    Discard and replace fairly often. The plastic weakens over time.
